Banana Sun Burn Aid
Banana face masks will provide relief and aid for sun burnt skin. The flesh of the banana is full of antioxidants which have soothing properties. Banana face masks are also very hydrating to dry skin and leaves it softer and fresh looking.
How to make your mask:
Using the back of a fork, simply just mash up a banana and put it on your face–leave it on for 30 minutes & rinse off. Use your moisturizer after you pat dry your skin. If you are extremely sunburned, put on some Aloe Vera gel before your moisturizer.
This is a great treatment to eliminate toxins. Steam your face over a bowl of hot water combined with a handful each of fresh cilantro and basil leaves, steaming for about 10 minutes. Hold your face at least 12 inches above the water and tent your head and the bowl with a towel to prevent the steam from escaping. Pat your face dry and splash with tepid water to refresh the skin. Discard the herbs. To purify the rest of the body, run a hot shower to fill the room with steam, and relax in the steam for seven to 10 minutes.
Maybe you don’t have the time or the cash to have regular facials. For you, a facial might be just a yearly indulgence. If you are going to do it only once a year, the best time of the year to get a facial is the fall. Although the outdoor cold and indoor dry heat in the winter are dehydrating to the skin, the worst time for your skin is the summer. Considering the time spent in the sun, the exposure to chlorine in pools, and the increased time outdoors (which means more contact with air pollution), summertime can be very damaging to the skin. A fall facial might help to repair some of the damage the summer season has caused. It could unclog your pores, get rid of dead skin cells (remember that sunburn?) and moisturize dry skin — all the better to face the trials of the cooler weather ahead.
